FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly shake The Thirty Five cocktail?

To properly shake The Thirty Five cocktail, start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 30ml of orange liqueur, 30ml of lemon juice, 60ml of tequila, and a dash of agave syrup into the shaker. Secure the lid tightly and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This ensures the mixture is well-chilled and properly diluted for a smooth taste.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnish works best with The Thirty Five?

A thin slice of orange or a twist of orange peel makes the perfect garnish for The Thirty Five. The citrus element complements the orange liqueur and lemon juice in the cocktail, enhancing its fresh, zesty profile.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the ideal way to serve The Thirty Five?

The Thirty Five is best served in a lowball glass over ice. After shaking the ingredients with ice to chill, strain the cocktail into the glass. This method ensures the cocktail remains cold and refreshing without being watered down by excess ice.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I use honey instead of agave syrup in The Thirty Five?

Yes, you can substitute honey for agave syrup in The Thirty Five, but keep in mind that honey is slightly sweeter and has a stronger flavor. Start with a small amount and adjust to taste. You may also need to warm the honey slightly to ensure it mixes well with the other ingredients.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of The Thirty Five compare to a standard margarita?

The Thirty Five has an alcohol content of 23.75%, which is relatively close to the alcohol content found in a standard margarita, usually around 20-30% depending on the recipe. Both cocktails are tequila-based, but the proportions of the ingredients can affect the final alcohol content.
